Will the 2960s in a stack pair do what I require? *with diagram*

Please see attached visio. Existing tab shows the switches in their current configuration using uplinks. Using only 2 new switches a pair of 2960s in a stack I would like to add resilience as shown. Is this possible or do I need something different? Thanks for any time and advice. Other suggestions to use existing switches very welcome to improve resilience of a single point of failure. Thanks Paul

Wow.  Ive haven seen a network cabled up like this for a long, long time.  Any reason why the switches are "lollipop-ed" like this?  Are they in different floors?  Different data racks? If they are all in the same floor/data racks, Id consider consolidating all the switch uplinks to a pair of 2960S or 3750.  Both the 2960S and the 3750/3750E/3750X can be stacked. Note:  Your diagram shows your switches to be using "switch cluster" and not stack. Best Regards/Leo
